Saana Wang – Hujialou

Gallery TAIK is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of Finnish artist Saana Wang in Berlin. The exhibition "Hujialou" presents works of the corresponding series by the Helsinki School artist from 2008/2009.

The works of Saana Wang are a captivating combination of documentary and staged photography. In her series "Hujialou" – that refers to the district with the same name in the east part of Beijing – she depicts decrepit interiors that tell about past times. At the same time the artist documents the rapid changes of urban scenery when capturing the residencies that were once built for the working-class and followed the idea of conformance. Having the inhabitants of these buildings posed with masks on their faces, Wang indicates in her pictures aspects of social and cultural development in contemporary Chinese society.

Hannu Karjalainen in Taidehalli STUDIO

The starting point of Hannu Karjalainen´s video Towards an Architect is the true story of a French architect, Guillaume Gillet. A follower of the ideas of Le Corbusier, in the 1960s, Gillet was the designer of what was then the largest prison in Europe. His goal was to create a building where the inmates would be happy, but the reality proved to be something altogether different. Prisoners in Fleury-Mérogis served their sentences in facilities that were damp and cramped. Some former prisoners took revenge on the architect by breaking into Gillet´s office, holding a gun to his head and vandalising the office.

In Karjalainen´s video, a mediocre and failed architect receives tit for tat. The punishment consists of wall paints from a palette designed by the master architect Le Corbusier for the Swiss wallpaper manufacturer Salubra. Le Corbusier´s harmonious colours are available to this day, albeit not as wallpaper, but as paint.

Marjukka Vainio – Kimono

Gallery TAIK is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of Finnish artist Marjukka Vainio in Berlin. The exhibition Kimono presents works from the series Red (2006–2010), Birch (2006–2010) as well as the still life Zantedeschia II (2010) by the Helsinki School artist.

The profoundly aesthetical works of Marjukka Vainio consist of the interplay between light and shadow, darkness and luminious colours. Vainio documents the world of plants not only to accentuate the beauty of their life forms but also to create a pictorial allegory for the cycles of life and death. Strongly inherent to her still lives is the idea of momentariness, as it has been developed in Dutch "vanitas-stilleven" paintings since the 17th Century.

Pernilla Zetterman – Turn Down Center Line

Gallery TAIK is delighted to present the Helsinki School artist Pernilla Zetterman in a solo exhibition from February 4 to March 12, 2011. The exhibition takes place in cooperation with the gallery Swedish Photography.

The work of Pernilla Zetterman is characterized by an intense exploration of topics such as human control, discipline and the exertion of power. The photographs of the series Close result from her personal experience and deal with equestrian culture and its associated cultural codes. Using close-ups Pernilla Zetterman shows the details of the bodies of horses and riding utensils. The study of conflicting emotions is the starting point as well as the central idea of the series. Equally, the title of the series Close implies the ambivalence of a relationship that may oscillate between intimate closeness and reserved dissociation.

Alice in Wonderland

Helsinki School artists will be presented in the exhibition Alice in Wonderland at Logomo in Turku during the European Capital of Culture 2011 from January 16 to December 18, 2011.

The wonderland of photographic art that the exhibition presents, deals with abandoned spaces and people – with fantasy meeting reality. The Wonderland is the weird world of Internet where people have uninhibited interaction with each other. The art in the exhibition asks relevant questions: Why does the public privacy of today´s social media fascinate us? Why do women want to become girls and men become boys? How come our private online spaces and photo sharing systems have been hi-jacked by the politicians? Alice is the main character of the story. In today´s world Alice is a profile being updated or a bystander on a street corner.

Art historians Anna-Kaisa Rastenberger and Elina Heikka will curate the exhibition in association with Sheyi Bankale (UK), curator and editor-in-chief. The event is being produced by the Finnish Museum of Photography.

The Helsinki School artists presented in the show include: Elina Brotherus, Ulla Jokusalo, Anni Leppälä, Susanna Majuri, Tuomo Rainio, Nelli Palomäki, Riitta Päiväläinen.
